  1. Never update your PC before going to sleep, especially when a package (or multiple packages) take extremely long. The whole LaTeX texlive suite takes an eternity to extract and configure.

  3. Paid back my student loan in one swoop. I hadn't much debt, so it was easy enough.

  4. I really appreciate the amount of different kinds of bread that are sold in Germany but I've never been so disappointed as in the mustard crust bread that I've bought recently. Just from the name it was so promising but the end result that touched my mouth was so mediocre bland in a bad way. So much so that the hints of mustard are distracting and not enriching the whole eating experience.

  5. I have one not well-working stepper motor (it doesn't have the power of its prime) and I'm thinking of building a polishing machine, more exactly https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3666116 or even more exactly this remix https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4230298 due to the different glass size.

  6. @scribus no I haven't. I'm not watching the news a lot. This is quite ridiculous and hilarious

  7. @mrmattimation For decades a lot of countries have voting by mail. There are real world numbers how insignificant the frauds are. Also not giving people the opportunity to vote is soooo democratic.

  12. @scribus From the sounds I receive it's a probable explanation. The trampling sounds transfer through the walls up such that I can hear them and my floor is swinging with the trampling giving me some unpleasant proto-seasickness.

  15. @scribus I'm a mostly hygienic reasonable person and already practiced most basic things like keeping distance and washing regularly my hands (going outside, coming home, before a meal...) and being highly aware of not touching the face upon touching others (shaking hands for example). Seeing others doing the same thing on a loosened quarantine is almost impossible. Whenever seeing public rest rooms somewhere else or at work... You lose faith. In my opinion it'll spread even faster because the mass of infected people is higher than at the beginning. 3 months in a tight lockdown would solve this problem, however most people gave up after a few weeks.

  19. @scribus I'm principally bothered that there are ants in my apartment in the first place.

  20. Today I've killed about 30 ants that tried to invade my apartment. I live on the 3rd level of the building. I haven't expected so many of them this high off the ground. I'm glad they were only in the bathroom where they could be easily spotted in front of the white tiles.

  21. My face face mask broke. The part for attaching the rubber strap snapped. I fixed it with a good 'ol 3D pen and fused the part back together. Clumsily, but it holds for now.

  22. "Like, Comment and Subscribe", the most uttered phrase on Youtube. Why don't they all shorten it to "LCAS", as a single difficult and to pronounce and short word? Or with a little bit of reordering it can be "SLAC" or "CLAS" or even "LACS". The call to action has become a call to snore and groan over the time to the point that's implicitly always assumed at the end of the video even when it's not said.

  26. I know that my face face mask is unbeatable but I've ordered some regular cloth masks. However they have some fancier prints on them. I wonder if they will be needed when they arrive. Nonetheless. I'll have something after the pandemic whenever I do some woodworking and sanding.

  28. I wanted to use https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/banana.htm to tune my USB microphone with an equalizer to reduce the treble and boost a little bit of bass, however I had to remove it because this doesn't work with Discord. None of the virtual inputs provided with the software are seen by Discord. Also the user interface is not very user-friendly even after reading the user's manual. I give up tuning my mic because my problem is not very huge because my mic already sounds good. I just wanted to enhance it a little bit.
